Wednesday April 08, 2015

US date format: 4/8/2015, UK date format: 8/4/2015

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 8, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Uptown Funk! by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars. Little Boy, directed by Alejandro Monteverde, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Endangered by C. J. Box was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number or Infinite Crisis.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2015 or at April 08 across the years.
